    Super Sprite V8 - Refurbishment

    This car has a very long history documented elsewhere, but as it has been invited to go on the Midget and Sprite Club stand at The Classic Car Show NEC I thought a refurb was needed.........

    So it was stripped down and new doors bought

    Then the bonnet and bodywork was tidied up and rubbed down. I decided to reduce the underbonnet "clutter" so have cut out the two bonnet hinge boxes so that I can hide the fuse box and windscreen wiper motor.

    Then it was off to a local body and Spray shop (Auto Spa in Souldrop) where they did more prep work.

    But today I was able to push it out into the sunshine...............






    To say that I'm pleased with the paintwork is an understatment! It really "Pops" in the sunlight. The paint is Mazda Black Cherry Mica

    Thanks Guys - and Guy! You are quite right it was time to give my frog a real treat. I finally had a bit of car money as I sold my 8V Sprint last week.
